Preview: Coupe de France Final – Marseille v PSG

PSG OM

This is it. The last game of the French football season, the last chance for silverware; PSG aiming for a second consecutive domestic quadruple, Marseille looking to defend their status as record cup-winners. Ooh. Marseille may not have had the most successful or stress-free league season but their cup run has been a bright note, featuring six different scorers (admittedly one […]

Ligue 1 PREVIEW: OM v Stade de Reims and Reims v Relegation – Week 37

OMReims

To say Marseille have had a difficult season is not so much an understatement as, well, something else entirely. L’Equipe headlined their last match, a 1-0 win away at Angers, after eleven matches without a victory, with ‘Marseille tient son maintien‘ (roughly, ‘Marseille are staying up’) – and this was of a very different mood than those Leicester fans waving a […]

Le50 2016: Stéphane Sparagna – Olympique de Marseille

SPARAGNA

Stephane Sparagna is one of the few players Marseille are pinning their hopes on in the next few seasons.

Le50 2016: Benjamin Mendy – Olympique de Marseille

MENDY

Marseille’s imposing left-back is one of the most experienced players in Le50 this year, as the 21-year-old is in his fifth professional season; not for him the gentle easing in with a couple of substitute appearances in the league or token starts in less challenging cup games – at just 17 he made over 30 starts for Le Havre in […]

Michel OM

Olympique Marseille’s already awful season fell into further disarray this morning as it was reported that coach Michel had been relieved of his duties as Marseille coach. The writing had been on the wall for a while for the ex-Spain international, who has presided over a calamitous tenure, which sees Marseille currently sitting only six points and two places above […]

Monaco v Marseille: Ligue 1 Preview – Week 34

MonacoMarseille

Sunday evening’s headline match is a south-coast derby between two of Ligue 1’s big guns. And as we enter full squeaky-bum time, both Monaco and Marseille could really do with a win. Having been PSG’s dauphin for 12 straight weeks, at one point with a double-figure lead over their rivals, recent poor form has dropped Monaco to third place (behind […]
